In sad news, Ron Miller, the son-in-law of Walt Disney himself has passed away at the age of 85! Mr. Miller (1933-2019), originally an NFL player, was also once the president and CEO of the The Walt Disney Company (after Walt’s death). He helped bring about more experimental Disney films like Tron and The Black Cauldron and created the Touchstone Pictures banner for less family-friendly films. While his leadership during these years is criticized, his loss still hits us hard in the Disney community! He shall be missed!
The English actor, Albert Finney, has sadly passed away at the age of 82! Mr. Finney (1936-2019) was most famous for his roles in Tom Jones, Scrooge, Annie, Big Fish, Skyfall, and my favorite performance of his in one of my favorite films, Murder on the Orient Express!
In terms of animation, he voiced the character of Mr. Everglot in Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride.
He shall be missed!
In what comes (at least to me) as shocking and sad news, actor Bob Hoskins has passed away at the age of 71 due to pneumonia.
